Dixie Highway
Description:
The Dixie Highway carried early auto tourists from the Midwestern US and Canada to Florida. When the US highway system was established, most of this system was absorbed into the nascent numbering system, some were not. Over time, much of it has been renamed, and the remaining named portions are like an incomplete puzzle. This category is an effort to fill in those missing pieces, connecting what time and progress have severed.
